Dear All,

As part of the Incremental project
(http://www.lib.cam.ac.uk/preservation/incremental/), we are running a
series of fortnightly seminars, centred around some of the day-to-day
challenges that researchers are facing in managing their digital
research data. We have a range of speakers from different disciplines
and perspectives, including researchers from the Arts, Social
Sciences, Humanities and Sciences, who will explore a particular issue
or theme through a mixture of presentations and discussion.

This series is co-organised with the Digital Humanities Initiative at
the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities
(CRASSH) http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/, as part of their Digital Forum
events programme, and will be held in the Centre's seminar room at 17
Mill Lane, Cambridge.

Our second seminar is next Wednesday:
